Hey, Am having trouble finding any info on a D44 swap from a MJ into a TJ. I know it needs brackets and all that. But my question is the width the same? And is there anything else I should be concerned with.

P.S. please don't suggest the 8.8 :)

Google:

Vehicle: '87-89 Jeep XJ or MJ with the metric ton option (front D30, rear D44, often packaged with the towing option)
Bolt pattern: 5 on 4.5" -- same as stock D30 & D35 on a YJ/TJ/XJ/MJ/ZJ. Could this be redrilled to 5 on 5.5" or 6 on 5.5" to match another D44 front axle? Probably not, due to insufficient flange material outside the stock studs
Width: 60.25" -- virtually identical to stock YJ/TJ/XJ/MJ
Brakes: 10x2.5" drums, vs the 9" drums on a late YJ
Spline count: 30
